Submission + - Skype fires senior execs ahead of Microsoft buyout (gigaom.com)

whoever57 writes: A number of senior execs at Skype have been fired. Bloomberg states that this action http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-06-19/skype-fires-executives-avoiding-payouts-after-microsoft-buyout.html"> reduces the value of their payouts. Perhaps people should consider this when working for a company that Silver Lake Partners has a controlling interest in. Vice Presidents David Gurle, Christopher Dean, Russ Shaw and Don Albert were dismissed from the Luxembourg-based company.
